The ''pop-up on USB plugged in'' is part of a OS hook that each OS provides
for. So if you are running XP inside a VMWare session, the easiest way to
do this in Python would be to tap into the win32 api using PyWin32. google
for 'pywin32' and "USB plug n play enumeration in XP".

hope this helps..

Thanks and best regards,
